Kate Michaud joined Double Canyon as its winemaker. In this role, she will direct and oversee all winemaking operations from the vine to the bottle. Most recently, Michaud was the first Washington-based winemaker funded by Naked Wines, enabling her to produce 90+-point cabernet sauvignons. She also served as a winemaker and assistant winemaker for Covey Run and Cone Ridge. Double Canyon, known for producing benchmark cabernet sauvignons, is currently constructing a new winemaking facility close to the brand’s vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills appellation. Once construction is complete, Michaud will offer direction on the 50,000-case capacity facility.
